Galaxy Slime...

Every Friday Miss M and her brother, Mr. B spend the day at our house so that their mom can help their dad with some of the administrative work of his business. Naomi has taken it upon herself to plan some kind of "learning activity" to do with them each week.
On the most recent Friday, their mom brought the ingredients and sent a link to Naomi for making "Galaxy Slime", a sensory play activity.

The simple ingredients of Elmer's clear school glue, liquid starch and colored glitter, created a product that was slimy and oozy and kind of rubbery... a substance with both the qualities of "icky" and "very cool"! You could let it run through your fingers or shape it into a ball. I must say that it was substantially cleaner than playing in a mud hole but probably provided that same sensory experience.

Naomi mixed 3 different colored batches, which eventually ended up all mixed together, creating a sort of silvery gray color.
It was fun to watch the kids as they experienced and explored the unique substance. They probably spent more than an hour playing with their "slime". The looks on their faces capture it well!
Oh the joy of squishing slime through your fingers!
